Summary and Info
This book presents the foundations and applications of statics by emphasizing the importance of visual analysis of topics—especially through the use of free body diagrams. It also promotes a problem-solving approach to solving examples through its strategy, solution, and discussion format. The authors further include design and computational examples that help integrate these ABET 2000 requirements. The book contains a Statics Study Pack which includes Free Body Diagram Workbook, Working Model CD-ROM, and Drill Website containing practice problems with full solutions. Features strong coverage of FBDs. Includes a revised discussion of loads (Ch. 6). Chapter topics include: Vectors; Forces; Systems of Forces and Moments; Objects in Equilibrium; Structures In Equilibrium; Centroids and Centers of Mass; Moments of Inertia; Friction; Internal Forces and Moments; Virtual Work and Potential Energy.
